My aging eyes prefer a red dot sight. I chose a Burris FastFire II on an Attero mount for my AMD65 Kit build..

All my ak’s have ALG triggers and ultimak’s on them but to answer my own question I kinda like the Krebbs saftey more then anything.... How about you?
Some sort of red dot or short range optic.

Unfortunately,

Getting the gun BACK to its original form is the best upgrade.

I have designated my Draco as the tactical timmy AKM and it's doing great.... Magpul front grip, Yugo pistol grip, forgot the folder make and model, ACE I'm pretty sure... I want to suppress it and a scope rail would be nice...

An effective muzzle brake and a new trigger, if needed. Then, stacks of mags and ammo.

I never thought I was going to be one of "those" people, but..

I put AR stock adapters and an AR stock of some sort on all my Go-to shooters and truck guns.

The rest I leave with what ever stock they came with.

The popsicle PG must go.

Hogue used to be my go to replacement but more & more of my AK’s are getting the rubber Magpul PG these days.

Russian fat wood grip,solid optic mount good red dot,or magnified if you live in wide open areas me I'm in deep woods beyond 100 yards is a rare shot around here even hunting, and I like my zenitco lower rail with a Haley strategic offset scout mount and surefire scout. Traditionalist like there wood and I do as well but all my AKM's have a mix of modern and wood. Hell even alot of eastern block AK users have some sort of modernization program. I.e. rails,lights,red dots,lasers what have you.

Since I consider the bayonet standard stock equipment, like the UF front spiders on a few of my preban’s, then I’d go with a good EOTech as a add on. Seems like everyone loves the ruggedness & dependability of their AK, so better accuracy is my choice!

MOE + AK pistol grip, trigger pin retaining plate, 4.5mm Folder W/ Triangle stock pouch( rifle dynamics) and I am thinking of getting a Zentico B10U and B22 mount. I'm also really digging the Khyber customs cheese grater gastube cover but the new ones they make now have bigger holes and a melonite coating so I am probably going to buy one of those soon.
All this is on a SLR 104-34.
Oh and a double hook AK trigger for personal preference.

545fitter: No kidding here, and never was.

MissingSpiker "woke me up".
When I suggested maybe a red dot scope, but without a doubt a few Hungarian Tanker mags, I assumed that you already have a few thousand rds. of ammo in reserve; not for "Road Warrior" scenarios battling for gasoline, but the next ammo panic.

Ammo first, then gear, unless you're not committed to keeping the AK very long.
